Outage details

  • All power will be restored no later than Saturday, June 29, at 6 a.m. The outage may end sooner than this time frame.
  • The loss of normal building power will not be continuous throughout the outage, but there may be multiple short durations of power loss during the planned outage time frame.
  • Individuals who are in a space that will be impacted by the power outage are asked to please power down their computers and equipment on a universal power supply (UPS) or battery.
  • During the transfer to generator power, there will be a 10-second delay for generator engines to start, so equipment such as a desktop computer, not on a UPS, will need to be restarted the following workday.
  • Individuals requiring extension cords for emergency-powered freezers or any other critical equipment, can contact Jeffrey Patterson, MBA, construction manager, Facilities Management, at or 210-273-8750.
  • Parking lot lighting will not be impacted by the power outage.
  • Individuals in a space impacted by the power outage who will be using their computer in remote desktop mode, will need to turn their computer on and log in after the power outage.
  • UT Health San Antonio virtual private network (VPN) functionality will not be impacted, so placing work files on a server is a good alternate to using one’s remote desktop.
  • Facilities Management staff will be on-site throughout the power outage and the Facilities Management Building will be staffed for any in-person or call-in requests.
  • During the power outage, Facilities Management staff will be performing routine reviews of the impacted spaces.
